The Experiment that can be developed with the module IT-ID40MS includes:

  • Principles of electro-pneumatics
  • Operation of micro-switch sensors
  • Operation of REED sensors

The module IT-ID40MS is used to distribute prismatic pieces. It has been designed to work with the module of conveyor belt IT-ID50MS. Pieces are expelled by a double acting cylinder controlled by a 5/2-way solenoid valve. The presence of pieces in the column is detected by a micro-switch sensor, whereas the position of the cylinder is detected by two REED sensors. The complete control of the module IT-ID40MS is carried out by a PLC (optional) linked to the system through an I/O interface box. The PLC programming software allows the development of a wide set of automation experiences with the module IT-ID40MS, working in an integrated cycle or in a standalone mode. Finally, the module IT-ID40MS supervision is carried out with the software.


It includes I/O interface box with:

  • Ø = 2 mm terminals
  • Cable with 25-pole D-SUB plug connector

Besides performing the function of control board for the module, this interface box also enables the students to carry out electrical measurements on the components of the module.

  • The control of the module is possible through the following PLC training panel (not supplied):
  • PLC training panels IT.ID100PLC manages the module through Ø = 2 mm terminals.
  • 24 V DC power supply is available on board.
